#1 Using the FHC

Post by SEJohnson95 » Thu Sep 05, 2019 8:41 am

Richard sent me this picture which made me chuckle.

Squeezing the engine frames from his light aircraft in the back of the FHC - they've been off for welding and painting.

Couldn't do that with an OTS! :lol:

You can get all sorts in the back of a FHC. Back in the days before Health & Safety went mad, that's where I regularly used to travel up until the age of about four :bigrin:

I used to haul all sorts of stuff in my FHC. There was plenty of room for all the stuff needed for a two-day camping trip to the vintages races at Laguna Seca, numerous model aircraft, and at one time I put two of my teenaged sister's friends back there. The E-Type is a lot more practical that most people would believe. BTW, that looks like an engine mount for a Van's Aircraft RV-7.

I'm loving some of the responses here. Two of your sister's best mats in the back? Enough said really :wink: :lol: And yes Mark, you'd be absolutely spot on, it is from an RV7

My first Etype memory was being taken to the vintage car racing at Silverstone in Gordon Jackson’s (Ipcress file, great escape etc etc )red 2+2 probably in 1969. I was 8
Roddy my best mate (Gordon’s son) in front and THREE of us in the rear.
I still remember the smell of leather etc
I think we got up to 90 mph on the M1

I was hooked...it only took another 42 years to get my own!

Happy days

BTW I went to see Tarantino’s new film last night...based in 1969...some fab cars including an Etype coupe..possibly a 2+2 ..parked on the street
